Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Mendoza Lattes "As co-director of Duke Spine Center, the goal of my practice is to treat patients with an interdisciplinary, evidence-based model. This includes a shared-decision-making process, team based care and continuous clinical outcomes collection. Educating and giving my patients access to information is a central piece of my approach. My philosophy is that the better educated patients are on their conditions, the better healthcare choices they are able to make. In the event that a patient needs surgery, we focus on optimizing and preparing prior to surgery with the purpose of improving outcomes. Complex spinal problems are better treated in an interdisciplinary, or team based, care environment. These collaborations are built into the Duke Spine Center and allow us to provide the best care and outcomes to patients with spine problems."

Dr. Mendoza operated on my 80 + year old mother's spine. She was scared, but he was great with her. Surgery went very well. The outcome was wonderful! He treated her with the upmost respect and kept us (her children) informed as well. Can't say enough good things about this doctor.

Dr. Mendoza and his staff are very friendly and knowledgeable but beware if you need anything done administratively. I had a disability claim that took him over a month to fill out the paperwork and fax it to my agent. This after repeated phone calls and pleas. It's disappointing the amount of...more
